in madison, mississippi, thank you for holding on. you're on booktv on c-span2 with melanie phillips. >> caller: thank you for taking my call. ms. phillips, i've enjoyed you today. and as i was listening to you, um, i kept thinking of hypocrisy, abuse, double standards -- some of of which you talked about. some of the standards that you, um, are talking about today are great indeed, but certainly everybody wasn't given an opportunity to live by those standards. your, the caller before talked about how do we return to those standards, and i think the right needs to start by cleaning up their own house. if you have double standards, hypocrisy and abuse of power, people are going to reject those notions outright in anybody who espouses those beliefs. so until the right can clean up their own house and make sure that -- and while they have righteous indignation, let it be across the board. you know, i can hear you if your righteous indignation is only for those things that affect what's in your best interests and not in my best interests. so i wondered if you could comment on that. >> ho

to egypt. gary, greenville, mississippi, republican. good morning. gary, are you there? caller: i am. host: go ahead, sir. caller: good morning. thank you for taking my call. i don't understand how some report the current administration in egypt because they were elected by the people. and we the american people, we supported their election. i mean, even john mccain who's a celebrated veteran said that this is a coo there. so i'm not so much for or against anything, but i think when americans call your show that we should understand that we supported this democratic effort that took place in egypt. and we should consider those things before we get on here talking negatively or positively about the subject. but i just don't understand how e're so kind of shallow in our support for the previous administration in egypt because again, they were duly elected by the people and then secondly as i mentioned before, one of the most celebrated veterans in this nation, senator mccain went there. he visited, so on and so forth, and he said that the -- that it was a coo. so that's just my thoughts. hos
